First Time Visiting New Hope, PA

I have been wanting to visit New Hope in Pennsylvania since my sister and her boyfriend always spend their dates in the place. Yes, in short I got curious what’s in New Hope –

“New Hope is a borough in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Located approximately 30 miles North of Philadelphia and lies on the west bank of Delaware River at its confluence with Aquetong Creek. Two lane New Hope – Lambertville Bridge carries automobile and foot traffic across Delaware to Lambertville, New Jersey on east bank.” – Wikipedia

Finding Happiness in Small Things

I was listening to the podcast “The Single Millennial” on Spotify when I felt like jotting down some of the stuffs I have in my heart.

I have neglected myself and the small things that made me happy because the world and environment I am currently at right now feels so tight and full of negativity. To start this month – I vowed to myself that even if life throws a bunch of rocks, I will stay optimistic and staying my head high and trying to find happiness in small things.

Self-Care Tips for your Mental Heath

I have struggled for years with anxiety and depression, and one of the things I’ve learned along the journey is just how important self-care truly is. When you hear “self-care” you may have a negative view or you may not. This has become a hot topic phrase and over time has led to some negative stigmas about what it actually means.

Self-care is defined as “the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health; the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress”. It does not just mean pedicures and spa days, although these are great forms of self-care for some people. When you have any sort of mental illness, day to day self-care is important in both maintaining and improving your overall well-being. For me, this means less anxiety (or responding to it more proactively) and decreased risk of a depressive episode.

AtHome: We’re Finally Moved In and Settled

If you missed it, my family and I moved out and found ourselves a home. I’ve shared some blog posts in the past, read here: AtHome: We Bought our First Home and AtHome: Packing + Minor Renovations.

It took us couple months til we’re finally moved in at our new home. Soon as the carpet was installed, our furnitures are starting to come!

I opted for a dirty white full bed on my room and a light pink shade for curtains! If you know me, pink is not in my vocubulary but I just felt like seeing colors on my room.
